Te Pahi

TE PAHI (1)

The bus, The place. For me the place.The place i was born, the place i grew up. The place i watched my mother cook wonderful meals. The place my father gardened and grew wonderful food for mum to cook. The place we ran, chased played and had the freedom to be kids.The place we caught eels in the creek. The place mum patched us up, cleaned us, fed us and looked after us.

To have a dream and  then walk the steps to create it is a wonderful thing. My dream has been to have a place called Te Pahi. A place where i can grow and cook and share wonderful food with people. The place where i can show people that to eat well is a simple thing, that  it does not have to take hours or cost a fortune. The dream is alive… The dream is here. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have found then, created something i truly love doing.

Cuisine Concepts has it home at Te Pahi. Cuisine Concepts is available to run your own cooking class, be it a canape demonstration with a group of friends, a summer salads class for special clients, Christmas fun for staff or maybe a hands on dinner party class with close friends and family.

Welcome to the Cuisine Concepts cooking classes

My Tauranga cooking classes in 2015 had a strong focus, on wood fired, out door cookery. A purpose built wood fired oven was commissioned at the end of 2014. The  Xmas and New Year season saw plenty of opportunity to crank it up and hone and fine tune skills . Following on from 2015, there will be an increased focus on cooking in season and from the garden, with the bigger picture theme of ‘every day simple food’ remaining. 2016 will also focus and show people that to eat well is not a difficult expensive process. Abundant, in season produce matched with simple techniques and you  are  there.

Also don’t be shy to get in contact if you would like a class in a venue of your choice.
